As both a tutor and classroom teacher, I have worked extensively with students who need to improve and practice their reading comprehension skills.

Algebra 1

A large portion of my tutoring experience has been working with students taking Algebra I. I truly love helping students transition to this more challenging type of math. I place a great deal of emphasis on how skills build upon each other as well as the steps of problem solving. My primary goals are to build not only skill, but confidence as well.

Prealgebra

A strong foundation in math is essential. Practice with both computation and problem solving makes students confident and successful. So often, I encounter students who know how to "follow the steps" but lack the understanding of why a problem is solved in a particular way or what the answer actually means. The use of the Common Core standards asks students to see the meaning behind the math--I can help give them that understanding.

Test Preparation

COOP/HSPT,

COOP/HSPT

I have been working with students to prepare for the HSPT for over 10 years. I begin with a general review of the test as a whole, then target specific sections and types of questions (i.e. the four types of questions found in the verbal section). The math portion of the exam is often the most daunting, so I review targeted topics (i.e. fractions, decimals, percent), then show students how those topics are presented on the test. For many of my students, this is their first experience taking a timed exam of this length. As a result, I place a strong emphasis on timing and have students complete short sets of questions within a certain time frame. This allows my students to gauge their own pace and know when to skip a particular question.

Jen teaches math but is by far the best tutor my daughter has ever had in any subject. She is super clear, never rushes the concepts and is high energy / fun. My daughter always feel energized about math after she leaves.

Jennifer, 8 lessons with Jennifer

First session and already thrilled!

Jennifer met with my son for the first time last week. She was wonderful and he really enjoyed the session. He already feels much better about the SSAT process and is looking forward to working with her weekly until he is ready for the test! She is very knowledgeable and a great resource!

Caring and Individualized Tutor

Jennifer is helping my daughter prepare for the SSAT. She is clearly listening to her concerns and addressing each one to help her feel more confident. Seems to be a great fit.

Maryann , 15 lessons with Jennifer

Great Tutor!

Jen is great! My son loves her. She is so caring and effective. She could charge more - she is worth it! Hope she is not reading this!! And she is so nice - really cares about the success of her students.

Christine, 12 lessons with Jennifer

Excellent...keeps my son engaged throughout the entire lesson

My son has had two lessons so far with Jennifer and he really enjoys them. He's preparing to take the SSAT and Jennifer has mapped out a plan for his studies. She's assisting with all components of the test.

Brendanbizier, 5 lessons with Jennifer

Very positive!!

Jennifer exceeded our expectations! She came to the house ready and sat right down to work. She had some excellent suggestions about taking the PSATs but most importantly: she was very positive in her comments and helped instill some confidence in preparation for taking the test. That part cannot be underestimated.

Julie , 3 lessons with Jennifer

Personable, knowledgeable and flexible.

Jennifer was excellent! She gave my son very helpful tips to help him with his SAT's. We plan on continuing with her over the summer so he can take it again in the fall.
